Not much to say today , yesturday was hectic and i had lots to do including my boo bears 1st dr’s check up . It went well , he’s healthy and doctor said he is very strong for his age so thats a plus 🙂 next appointement for him is on april 11th.
It all started on the 28th , i went in to see my doctor to see what was up with all the crap i had went through and things with the due dates getting mixed up and to why i was still pregnant…
So we talked , i let her know how stressful it was to be told one thing and then another thing and then to be told a different thing afterwards. She checked my cervix and told me it had been closing back up so she tells me im a 3cm’s and bout 60% effaced. I told her to strip my membranes really good and boy did she ever… i bawled when she did thats how good of a stripping it was , it really hurt!
So then i came back home and got a contraction at 4pm , then started getting them irregular for the rest of the night. Then at 3am i got one that woke me up and was like whoa! then they kept coming at 6 mins apart , stayed that way for a LONGGGG time then at 6pm they were 4mins apart and i couldnt handle it anymore so we went in to get checked up.
We get there at 6pm , they check my cervix and inform me that im 5 ½ cm’s and that i should go walk to make baby decend a bit more so they can break my waters. So i walked for an hour , came back and the contractions were 3mins apart and very strong. So they plugged me on the monitors to check baby’s heart rate and the contractions, then at 8pm my doctor came in and broke my waters and at that point i was 6cm.
So they prepared the delivery room , transferd me in the room and asked me if i wanted the epi and i said HELL YAH lol i didnt want it at first but after i was like ok , i sufferd long enough during the last few weeks even to say months so i deserve relief and so at 10pm i was 7cms and 80% effaced and they gave me my epidural.
The epidural process took time because she had to find the right spot , so she pricked me 4 times to ” freeze” the skin and then proceeded to put the epi in. It kicked in right away and i couldnt feel anything anymore which was awesome!
at 11pm they came back to check my cervix and i was 8cm’s and 90% effaced. Then at 11:55pm i was feel something coming out of me , like he was pushing but i wasnt… so i told them something is pushing out and so the nurse checks me and as soon as she opens my legs she goes OH dear hunny your baby’s head is half way out , let me get ur doctor right now.
The doctor rushes in and goes ok , so do you want a feb 29th baby or a march 1st baby and etienne goes, 29th would be nice and i gave him this look of death like NO WAY , and i said dont listen to him i want a march first baby .. so she tells me to push … i pushed once and boom his head poped out and then another little push and he was out. 12:01 am lolll talk about timing lol
My doctor freaked etienne out because he deliverd the baby , she was like ok dad come over here your gonna deliver your baby. I swear his face was like nothing ive ever seen before lol but he did it and it was beautiful to watch him .
He gets him out and puts him on my chest and when they were cleaning off the excess yucky stuff i noticed the penis and i was like , oh wow again!? and hes like whats wrong and my doctor says yeah the placenta is coming so you might feel like its pushing again and you might have a contraction or two… and i was like NO NO not that , baby is a boy.
My doctors eyes poped out , the nurses mouths fell wide open and they were all like NO WAY , AGAIN!? and all i could say was, but hes beautiful , look at how beautiful he is and i went on and on crying like a baby because everything was finally over and he was just perfect!
I didnt care about the gender at that point and i felt this feeling of being complete and not needing or wanting anything else . Thinking ok now i am ready to watch my babies grow up and enjoy every second of it. My delivery was the best delivery i could of asked for , my baby was healthy and beautiful and i was telling myself ok this is the feeling of knowing my family is complete and i am at peace with it.
we got the nurse to take a picture of us and then etienne stayed a little bit while they weighed Mikaël and preped him … then he went home cuz my niece ( the babysitter) had school the next morning and etienne had to catch some sleep since we were up the night before because of the contractions , so i sent him home with the biggest smile on his face lol
i got in my maternity room at 2am , got Mikaël fed , changed and went to bed .
so thats the story ,
Mikaël Alex Paquette – March 1st 2012 – 12:01am – 6lbs 13oz – 19 ½ inches long ( so much for the huge baby they said he was to be lol )
